Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

Hush – an unlikely concert

In a way, it's Executive Director Stefan Forsberg who has created this concert with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and guest artists – but he knows nothing about it.

A secret concert then, somewhat unlikely in its content. After 21 years as Executive and Artistic Director of Konserthuset Stockholm, Stefan Forsberg is retiring. This is commemorated with a concert that unfortunately we can’t say much about. It's all hush-hush and antics when a beloved director is bid farewell in grand style with music.

Allow yourself to be surprised, just like Stefan himself. We can reveal that Chief Conductor Ryan Bancroft will be leading the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and the one cleverly guiding through music and mischief is actor Andreas T Olsson. There will be around ten Swedish and international guest artists, singers and instrumentalists. There will be classical music, with the occasional jazzy number, some summery melodies – and some that are harder to define.

We won't reveal much more for now, as the unlikely concert becomes likely and real only at 4:00 PM on June 15th. Join us on a concert adventure filled with surprises, laughter, and a touch of wistfulness.
